Description

Additional photos of this 1984 Suzuki RG250 are available here for your perusal.

The Suzuki RG250 Gamma was introduced in 1983 as the first mass-produced motorcycle with a 100% aluminium box section chassis. This, combined with the light weight of <300 pounds, anti-dive forks, and "Full Floater" rear suspension, is why it is considered by some to be the first street-legal race replica.

The water-cooled 250cc two-stroke motor produced approximately 45 horsepower – a healthy amount when you consider that it weighed just 337 pounds ready to ride. These were never officially sold in the US.

A 1984 review in Cycle magazine bemoaned that fact, as they loved what it represented: “Sure, the Gamma will work as a Saturday-cruise-to-the-beach special, and be wasted doing so. In the month we’ve spent with the RG, it’s happier threatening life, limb, and license. No, it’s not unsafe; quite to the contrary, it’ll get you out of trouble as fast as you get yourself into it. Some motorcycles are fun to ride fast, others – better yet – are willing accomplices to misbehavior, and still others – best of all – are almost bonafide perpetrators themselves.”

This example (VIN: GJ21B121141) was sourced from Mecum but originated from the David Silver collection. That’s the extent of the history we have on it. The new owner realized it was more work than he anticipated and opted to just sell it as is with no reserve and put the funds towards a purchase with Iconic.

The odometer shows 11,941 kilometers (7,419 miles).

There are several scratches in the bodywork and a crack in the bellypan near the sidestand (which is bent).

We have the key and can verify that that it gets power, however it does not start. Ricki reports that it has good compression but it smells like old gas. We believe that it would need a carb clean and new filters before it would run again – our White Glove service would be able to take care for that for approximately $500-700. It is offered on a clean Pennsylvania title and is available for inspection at our location in Santa Monica, California.
